    Once you connect with us, tell our Operations Team all about your special child and based on these details, a Key Therapist will be assigned to carry out an Initial Consultation.  If more than one therapy is required, the case will be discussed by our Interdisciplinary Team. You can also ask anything else that you wish to know about us!

    Valid standardised test data may be carried forward from previous reputable therapies as per the clinical judgement of the assigned key therapist.
